Under the realm of the Credit Agricole Grands Crus since 2012, the wines have been among the most distinctive in the appellation in recent years due to the talented winemaker Anne Le Naour, who is under the advice of experienced oenologist consultant Eric Boissenot.
The 2017 vintage will be remembered for the frosts that hit the Bordeaux vineyards, and they did not spare the area around La Tour de Mons. However, the efforts of the technical team were able to produce a wine that signifies a fine Margaux.
From the vineyard to the winery, the greatest attention was paid to extract the best of this vintage. The manual harvest started on September 13 with the Merlots and then finished on October 2 with the Cabernet Sauvignons. Vinification then took place in stainless steel vats. The Chateau la Tour de Mons 2017 is a great wine from the estate. It is made from a blend of 50% Merlot and 39% Cabernet Sauvignon and 11% Cabernet Franc.
Displaying the elegance and finesse of the fine Margaux, the Chateau La Tour de Mons 2017 reveals the radiance of black fruit notes while underscoring the aging in oak with smoky notes. The frankness of the attack seduces the palate with its juice and its ample roundness while balancing with chewy tannins that stretch into a slightly oaky finish. With a beautiful depth, the Chateau La Tour de Mons 2017 is a true success with good aging potential.
